Identification and exploitation of novel disease resistance genes in sugar beet

, : Identification and exploitation of novel disease resistance genes in sugar beet. Pest Management Science 59(2): 225-230

Sugar beet is a valuable arable crop providing a large proportion of world sugar supplies. It is susceptible to a range of fungal and viral diseases, to most of which there is inadequate genetic resistance. Control instead relies largely on the use of pesticides. To increase the sustainability of sugar-beet cultivation, strong and durable genetic resistance is urgently needed. This review describes an IACR-Broom's Barn programme devoted to evaluating Beta germplasm for novel resistance to major viral and fungal diseases, and its progress in elucidating the numbers and locations of the genes responsible.

Spore attachment of three Pasteuria penetrans isolates was assessed on juveniles of Meloidogyne incognita and Meloidogyne javanica populations from Greece. The nematode populations differed in their ability to reproduce on tomatoes with the Mi gen...
